“I purchased some Black-Olive paste for the Stocking Swap with mama's kitchen (Hope)and of course had to get one for myself. This is a recipe I found and adapted that uses the wonderful paste. The original recipe was by Jimmy Bradley, co-owner of of Chelsea's wonderful Red Cat at The Mermaid Inn.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small jar or container with lid, shake oil with the vinegar, olive paste, onion, basil and a pinch of salt and pepper until well blended.
  2. Halve the Hass avocado or quarter the Florida avocado and remove the pit and peels. Gently hold the avocados and thinly slice crosswise, keeping them whole (do not separate slices). Using a spatula, carefully place the avocado, cut side down, to a platter and gently press each of them to fan out the slices. Squeeze a bit of fresh lemon over the tops and drizzle the vinaigrette on top of the avocados and serve.
